The hottest Unicom opens ponftth terminal test pav

  • Detail

Unicom opens PON FTTH terminal test paving 2012pon centralized purchase recently, China Unicom opened the public test of PON FTTH terminal equipment in 2012. The test content revolved around the further leveling and compaction of the land inside the plant in GPON and EPON equipment (excluding 10g EPON and 10g GPON equipment), FTTH terminal equipment (SFU and HGU equipment). And clearly put forward the requirements: all equipment that will participate in the future PON FTTH bidding of China Unicom, and the equipment that will be applied in China Unicom after winning the bid, must participate in the test and pass the test. Since this year, operators have focused on the total bidding volume of FTTH terminals in the relevant PON bidding, and split the previous overall bidding of PON equipment. Insiders of China Unicom group revealed that due to the wide variety of Family Customs of various equipment manufacturers, in order to avoid the inconsistency between the types quoted in the bidding and the actual deployed equipment, several terminal types will be unified and standardized to reduce the complexity of the next bidding. The source also stressed that the focus of operators' next PON equipment centralized purchase will be on FTTH terminals

China Unicom has begun to prepare for PON centralized purchase

the FTTH terminal test is actually to prepare for the next PON centralized purchase. In the past PON centralized purchase, OLT and ONU equipment were provided by the same manufacturer. The reason is that OLT and ONU of different manufacturers are difficult to realize interoperability. In this year's PON centralized purchase of Chinatelecom, GPON FTTH terminals and EPON FTTH terminals are separately centralized purchase, which also benefits from Chinatelecom's mandatory requirement that OLTS of various manufacturers must be able to match onus of other manufacturers, which truly realizes interconnection. Operators hope to introduce more suppliers into the centralized purchase sequence to maintain the relative balance of competition

in terms of the FTTH terminal test currently being carried out by China Unicom, many small and medium-sized enterprises have participated in the test. As the test is still in progress, the specific performance of the equipment that can achieve an annual production capacity of 200000 pieces of fence type aluminum lead alloy composite anode plate is still uncertain. However, after the interconnection is realized, it will be of great benefit to the subsequent centralized procurement. Combined with the existing FTTH terminal equipment, the technology has been relatively mature, and for small and medium-sized manufacturers, there is also an opportunity to enter the centralized purchase sequence

the above source said that China Unicom has now begun to prepare for the 2012 PON centralized purchase, and the specific centralized purchase time has not been determined yet. According to the time of centralized purchase last year, the bidding announcement was issued in August, and the bidding time of this year is approaching. Last year, China Unicom has purchased 25million lines of PON equipment, and the scale of centralized purchase is also very large. This year, with the promotion of broadband speed-up and popularization project, the scale of centralized purchase will also be further expanded

hidden dangers of centralized purchase by operators highlight

the centralized purchase of PON over the years is the most intense time for all system equipment manufacturers, and price wars occur one after another. Under the centralized purchase mechanism of operators, the shadow of winning the bid at the lowest price always exists. Moreover, judging from the PON centralized purchase conducted by Chinatelecom this year, the price war is still very hot. However, it is worth mentioning that Huawei did not vigorously seize market share. As the new leader of system equipment manufacturers, this performance also began to show the change of Huawei's bidding strategy. It is understood that since the beginning of this year, Huawei has focused on profit margins across its entire product line, and its previous strategy of vigorously expanding market scale has also shifted its direction

coincidentally, when the financial reports of mainstream equipment manufacturers were released this year, the profit situation was in an all-round hurry, and Ericsson, ZTE, Alcatel lucent all suffered from profit setbacks to varying degrees. Many industry experts pointed out that the competitive strategy of price for market has caused a huge impact on the cash flow of communication equipment manufacturers, and this development strategy urgently needs to be changed. The relevant senior executives of ZTE have also revealed that it will transform to technology for profit, and the change in the thinking of equipment manufacturers will be conducive to the rational development of the whole industry

for the next China Unicom PON centralized purchase, the bidding strategy of each manufacturer may change to a large extent. The extent to which rational competition can be restored still depends on the performance of each manufacturer in this centralized purchase. To be sure, with the change of market development ideas of mainstream suppliers, few players can continue to rely on price war to seize share, and the resolution of power value can almost reach 100000 pull machines

ftth promotion needs relaxation to a certain extent

similar to the situation of Chinatelecom, China Unicom has also vigorously promoted the scale deployment of FTTH this year. It is understood that the promotion of FTTH has also been included in the KPI assessment of all provinces, which has great indicator pressure on the promotion work of all provinces. However, from the actual construction situation, in the promotion and deployment of FTTH, many mandatory broadband upgrading measures have caused great trouble to broadband users, and the obstacles of users to FTTH transformation are becoming more and more obvious, and user perception is also declining. Moreover, from the reaction of many users, the high tariff corresponding to the high-speed rate makes users shy away from it. At the same time, there are still a large number of users who have little demand for high-speed bandwidth, and the traditional ADSL can still meet their needs, which also creates a dilemma for operators to promote FTTH

combined with the actual promotion of local operators, the promotion of FTTH in some provinces and cities is still relatively slow. A local Unicom expert in the South told that as early as the beginning of this year, the company had established a broadband access mode based on GPON FTTH. However, up to now, there is still no substantive promotion action in the local area. The above Unicom insiders also said that at present, in the process of promoting network transformation proposed at the central city work conference, many local Unicoms are also faced with the situation that light cannot enter and copper cannot exit. For this situation, most places still choose to adopt the measure of light and copper to maximize the actual needs of users

it is worth mentioning that from the policy level, the broadband popularization and speed-up project has been fully launched, and the deployment goals of the three major operators have been very clear. It is understood that in the first half of this year, the actual FTTH popularization users still did not meet expectations, which is still a great challenge for all operators, and ultimately this part of the pressure will be shared with local operators, The extent to which this year's light popularization can be achieved is still unknown
